The master’s program with a specialization of health and exercise science is designed to help students develop a thorough understanding of the basic principles and ccomprehensive knowledge related to health and exercise science. The program offers courses that cover a variety of topics such as biomechanics, cognitive neuroscience, motor control, psychiatry of sports, epidemiology, preventive medicine, athletic training, exercise physiology, muscle biology and so on. The program also offers exciting research opportunities in the eld and/or laboratory setting. Well-equipped research facilities, including bone densitometry system, electroencephalogram, electromyogram, ume (water treadmill), force platform system, magnetic resonance imaging system, respiratory gas analyzer, three-dimensional motion capture system, experimental animal facility, etc. are available for students’ research. Graduate students will learn fundamental research skills directly from the supervisor and conduct a research project in the topic of their choice within the eld of specialization. Completing their own research projects and submitting a master’s thesis are required for graduation. With the completion of required coursework and research, graduates will be prepared to apply their knowledge and experience to pursue their professional career in the elds of health promotion, tness industry, related clinical programs, high school or college coaching and teaching in secondary or tertiary school, or to pursue a doctoral degree program in the eld of specialization.Health and Exercise ScienceMaster’s Program*Please note that these subjects are subject to change.Voice of Current StudentsMuscle biologyProfessor AKIMOTO, TakayukiBiomechanicsProfessorKAWAKAMI, YasuoSports psychologyProfessorMASAKI, HiroakiMaster’s Thesis AdvisorsSpecializationQualicationNameHealth and Exercise Science 1•2 (Seminar 1•2) Biodynamics(Musculoskeletal System)Brain Function for Motivating ActionCognitive Neuroscience and Psychiatry of SportDisease Prevention and Health PromotionEnvironmental HealthFundamentals of Life ScienceGerontologyHealth and Sports EpidemiologyHuman Anatomy 1•2Injury PreventionPhysical Activity and Health PhysiologyPreventive Medicine and Applied ImmunologyQuantitative Biomechanical Analysis of Human MotionResearch design and methods 1•2Sports RehabilitationTechnical writing for Health & Exercise ScienceSubjectsHow do you like studying at the Motor nerve physiologyProfessorTAKARADA, YudaiBiomechanicsProfessorYANAI, ToshimasaExercise physiologyAssociate ProfessorMIYASHITA, MasashiSleep medicineAssociate ProfessorNISHIDA, MasakiHealth and sports epidemiologyProfessorSAWADA, SusumuDIMIC, MilosGraduated from Alfa University (Serbia)Entered in September 2019 (Kinesiology specialization, Doctoral Program)I am very curious and passionate about things that I do. Those are the most important drivers of my personal growth and personal development. Finding an academic environment where I could nurture these values and be encouraged to use them as a guide for the future was my priority. The pinnacle of my life in Japan are my Doctoral studies at this prestigious university. Since the beginning, I have felt only enthusiasm and admiration by the fact that I belong to the institution build upon the tradition and values of Japanese culture but with the futuristic mindset, wide open for the innovative thoughts and creations. My Waseda University PhD Program has given me with the opportunity to deeply connect with my mentor and get open hearted support from my colleagues that keeps feeding my enthusiasm and condence to keep on researching and creating new sport and scientic values for the future of my sport and generations of players to come.
